Create your own wig design that Lanky Len and Hefty Hugh could sell, rather than being naughty and try and steal the mermaid's hair. Write some simple sentences to say what your wig looks like. Is it long or short? What colour is it? What would you add to the wig to make it more amazing and make people want to buy it?


What was the ladybird's plan? Can you write some simple sentences about it?
